Why Donald Trump Is Wrong About Exercise

President Donald Trump reportedly eschews exercise because he believes it
drains the body's "finite" energy resources, but experts say this argument
is flawed because the human body actually becomes stronger with exercise.

.

Trump's views on exercise were mentioned in a New Yorker article published
this week by politics reporter Evan Osnos. The article notes, "Other than
golf, [Trump] considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a
battery, is born with a finite amount of energy."

.

Other authors have also noted Trump's aversion to exercise. According to
an article on Vox, the 2016 book "Trump Revealed" states that Trump mostly
gave up athletics after college, believing that exercise would only
deplete a person's finite amount of energy.

.

Although it's true that exercise uses energy, "the 'battery' concept fails
to account for several inborn capacities our body possesses that make it
one of, if not the greatest, machines on Earth," said Dr. Michael Jonesco,
a sports medicine and orthopedics specialist at The Ohio State University
Wexner Medical Center. "Our bodies are so complex, it's incredibly
difficult to describe its unrivaled efficiency and adaptability," Jonesco
said. [The 4 Types of Exercise You Need to Be Healthy]

.

Exercise does deplete stores of glucose, glycogen and fats  the body's
"fuels"  from the body's tissues, but these fuels are restored when a
person eats, Jonesco said.

.

Rather than thinking of energy stores as a battery, "a better analogy
would be like the fire that you continue to fuel with more coal or wood,"
Jonesco told Live Science. "You need to continue to add fuel, or your
flame will die. This is true whether you exercise or not ... Simply by
existing, we are burning energy."

.

What's more, although exercise puts a temporary stress on the body, the
body adapts to that stress so that the heart and muscles become stronger
and more efficient. "If we can create a battery that, every time it's
used, actually becomes more powerful and efficient, then sure, our body is
like that battery," Jonesco said.

.

Some studies have even found that exercise makes people feel more
energized. In one study, conducted in 2008, researchers tested the effects
of exercise on 36 people who reported feeling chronically tired but didn't
have a medical condition to explain their fatigue. They found that the
people who engaged in 20 minutes of low- to moderate-intensity exercise
three times a week reported a 20 percent increase in their feelings of
energy, compared  to what was seen in a control group of people who didn't
work out at all.
